The tulip stitch is one of my favorite crochet stitches because its so easy but doesn't look easy. The tulip stitch is delicate, feminine, and gets its name from resembling a row of upright tulips (I don't really see it but I didn't name it).


The tulip stitch would be a great crochet stitch for afghans, throws, baby blankets, dishcloths or scarves. I’ve also found that it looks beautiful with a great variety of yarn from 100% cotton to wool and alpaca blends.


This pattern is a one row repeat so its very easy to memorize and works up quickly! The first row is different from the second, so its row 2 that you will repeat throughout.

The Tulip Stitch Pattern

Begin with a chain in multiples of 4.

Row 1: In the third chain from the hook, double crochet. Chain 2, single crochet in the next chain. *Skip 2 chains, work 2 double crochet in the next chain, chain 2, single crochet in the next chain. Repeat from * across. Turn.


Row 2: Chain 2. Skip 1st stitch. In the next chain 2 space, work (2 double crochet, chain 2, single crochet). *Skip 3 stitches. In the next chain 2 space, work (2 double crochet, chain 2, single crochet). Repeat from * across. Turn.


Repeat row 2 until the project is your desired length.
